Project Description

Scorpio Masonry contributed to IBI's design of this project. The project is one that several Scorpio employees hold close as some employees have family members currently serving with, have served with and have lost serving with the PPCLI. The main central circular component of the project was designed to replicate one that was constructed in Frezenburg, France honouring Canada's service in the 2nd battle of Ypres that took place on May 8, 1915. The Griesbach Memorial has granite supplied by A. Lacroix Granite, which includes radius pieces for the stairs leading up to the memorial, granite paving at the top of the stairs around the memorial and radiused granite cladding and copings to the memorial which has a brass domed cap with the PPCLI logo incorporated. The project also involved the supply and install of 22 granite pedestals for the install of brass battle honour ribbons onto and the supply and install of 2 main granite walls with brass plaques for each campaign the PPCLI fought in, with the names of all lost in each campaign listed on the plaques.
